About me

I am a registered Nutritional Therapist with a BSc in Nutritional Medicine. I've been in practice for over 10 years and through my previous doctorate training (PhD) at Oxford University in neuropharmacology I take a specialist interest in how nutrition and the environmental factors influences brain health and the gut-brain axis, which underpins many different areas of physical and emotional health.

I have personal experience of the demands of an executive corporate environment and the toll that this can take on health. With this understanding I can provide not just expert opinion and nutrition programmes but also coaching in simple behaviour changes and practical strategies that can easily be implemented to change your health for the better.

Information about health conditions (*)

Nutritional therapy can help enhance the well-being of individuals diagnosed with serious medical conditions, but should not take the place of medical treatment and advice. If you have been diagnosed with - or suspect you may have - any of these conditions, please speak to your doctor before starting nutritional therapy or making any major changes to your diet or lifestyle.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a nutritionist's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the nutritionist to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
